President Muhammadu Buhari, who is in the United Kingdom on an official visit, has defended his decision to seek re-election next year, saying he wanted to end speculation so he could concentrate on his job.

President Buhari had officially declared his intention to seek re-election on Monday, April 9, during the National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting of the All Progressives Congress (APC) after various speculations.

"I declared before leaving home because Nigerians were talking too much about whether I would run or not".

The Director-General of Voice of Nigeria, Mr. Osita Okechukwu, has expressed appreciation to the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Barrister Boss Mustapha, over his advice to the people of the southeastern region on how to achieve Igbo presidency.

"We needed to concentrate on them, and politics should not be a distraction".

"But until we approve, no single amount can be taken from that account", he said.

Nihi, who is the Chairman Kogi State chapter, NYCN, said it was time for all interested parties to return to the drawing board to strategise the way forward and let the people decide. Ardo made the call while interacting with newsmen in Abuja yesterday, saying "Nigerians should come out en-masse to support our hero to enable him wipe out corruption in the country".

On the war against insurgency, he stressed the need for continuous education of the people, "so that they can be free from religious manipulation", adding that no true religion advocates the hurting or killing of the innocent.

"We have not received any communication yet from the president regarding the $1 billion", he said. "But we are working on solutions".

In the statement released on Wednesday, he said.

The house of representatives says it is yet to receive communication from President Muhammadu Buhari regarding the $1 billion for procurement of security equipment.
